All About Minerals

Mineral Makeup

Mineral makeup certainly isn't new. The rich pigments and skin loving properties have been part of beauty routines around the world for centuries. And as you may have noticed, they haven't gone anywhere - in fact they've had a huge boost in popularity in today's cosmetics market.

But why all the fuss around mineral makeup? 

Nature baby
With natural ingredients and no other additives, it is a great option for sensitive skin. Our Irresistible Face Base is made of incredibly finely milled minerals (including gemstones), that's it. It's gentle enough for skin suffering from acne and rosacea.

Super chilled
Because minerals are inert (meaning chemically inactive), there's no need to add anything else, like a preservative, to the formula.

Skin loving
Many of the minerals used in makeup contain skin loving benefits. Mii's mineral range, for example, contains precious gemstones like quartz, which has calming and energising properties. Mica is a light reflecting mineral, which naturally helps to flatter the complexion and disguise imperfections.

Ever adaptable
Our Mineral Irresistible Face Base is perfect for layering. When buffed onto the skin, the powder transforms to a creamy finish meaning you can create the cover that works for you - light to full, and everything in between. You can also use it as a pigmented finishing powder, or a concealer to help dry and heal spots.

Our pure Mii mineral range was created for beauty therapists, offering a makeup that was gentle enough to apply to sensitive, post-facial or laser treated skin. Embraced by their clients and beyond, our Mineral Irresistible Face Base won a coveted 2019 Beauty Bible Award in the UK!

One thing to bear in mind is that not all mineral makeup is created equal. The cosmetics industry has little regulation around what can be claimed as mineral makeup - so make sure you're happy with the ingredients. At Mii, while many of our products include a high percentage of minerals, we only claim our 100% natural range, which is at least 99% mineral to be mineral makeup.

So why not add some minerals to your day? With mineral foundation, blush, eye colours, highlighting shimmer and pressed powder, you can choose to go for a full mineral look, or mix and match with your other favourite products.
